Home & Garden deals for 2017
Our homes and gardens are the things we spend the most money on, so the great deals on offer at HotDeals.co.uk are a must for anyone! Here you’ll find a huge selection of home and garden deals, vouchers, special offers, sale discounts and multi-buys.
Purchases for the home and garden go through seasonal cycles, in much the same way that many other purchasing habits fluctuate. While purchases associated with the garden are the most seasonally inspired purchases, according to market research carried out by Euromonitor International home purchases also tend to go through seasonal ‘phases’ too.
For example, the spring months will see an increase in the number of DIY and home improvement products bought both in store and online, as homeowners prepare to put their property on the market during the busy spring/summer buying phase. The autumn and winter months sees an increase in the number of bedding and soft furnishing purchases, particularly duvets and blankets.
The savvy shopper will, however, think ahead, as retailers discount existing autumn/winter stock to clear the shelves for spring/summer lines, and vice versa. It is at these crossover points in the sales cycle when the best deals and offers are often available. While the most common deals will be advertised heavily as end-of-season sale bargains, it’s always worth watching out for a variety of other offers such as 2-for-1 deals or stock clearance offers. These can yield savings of up to 70% on a wide range of items like sofas, beds and dining room furniture to new bathroom suites, kitchen units and even garden sheds.
Home and garden voucher codes can be accessed throughout the year and give a discount on a specific item or product. However, do remember that voucher codes are often retailer-specific and cannot be used at other websites.
Great garden deals
As we head into spring it’s time to tidy up the garden and get it ready for the summer. While electrical appliances such as hedge trimmers and hover mowers are often one-off purchases, it’s the repeat buys such as bedding plants, lawn feed and, increasingly, vegetable seeds that are also worth watching out for. Good quality plant ‘plugs’ will mean you don’t have to grow your flowers from seed, while bags of seed potatoes and onion sets will give you a good start to the season if you’re growing your own food.
Garden tools such as rakes, forks, Dutch hoes and spades are all garden essentials and while you may not replace them every year, it’s still worth keeping an eye out for voucher offers and great garden deals.
The gardener’s year
Research by Mintel has shown that the time of year will have a strong bearing on the type of garden products bought. So in the spring, for example, bedding plants, seeds, fertiliser and compost will be in demand, while during the summer the sale of lawn mowers, barbecues and garden furniture increases. The autumn is the most common time for purchasing hard landscaping products such as paving slabs, gravel and greenhouses, while the winter sees a considerable increase in the sale of seeds and pre-ordered bedding plants for the spring.
But it’s not just garden bargains that are attracting consumers. We spend more on our homes than on anything else, and your house will be the single most expensive purchase you make during your lifetime. Once you’ve got the basic bricks and mortar then it’s time to stamp your own personality on the place. Home and garden makeover programmes have also encouraged everyone to try their hand at DIY, and in recent years retailers have seen the sale of paints, wallpapers and flat-pack furniture skyrocket.
Trends and fashions in interior design
Changing trends and fashions in interior design and décor drive our seemingly insatiable need to make new home and garden purchases. We now include the garden in that concept, as gardens are now regarded as ‘outside rooms’ so exterior lighting, garden furniture, heaters and barbecues all have their place in the overall design of your home. Kitchens and bathrooms in particular are influenced by changing trends in décor and design – and even the avocado bathroom suite could potentially make a comeback one day!
In the kitchen both full redesigns and more cost-effective refurbishments have pushed up the sales of flat-pack furniture. Suppliers such as Wickes, B&Q and Homebase are all reporting increases in the sales of DIY bathroom and kitchen units, while Oak Furnitureland and others are seeing increases in more traditional style hardwood furniture.
But it’s also the little things that make a home, so it’s worth looking out for deals on kitchen accessories, cushions, soft furnishings, lighting and if you’re feeling extravagant, even the occasional chandelier!
Office furniture for the home
Our homes are also turning into our workplaces too, as a greater number of people adopt more flexible working practices. So office furniture that’s suitable for use in the home is also becoming a big seller. Units, computer tables and shelving can be utilised both in a living space and in a work area.
Working from home also means considering your utility costs, so if you are running a business from home then it’s worth looking around for broadband and phone deals that will keep your overheads low. Working from home can also affect your home and contents insurance, so make sure you check in with your broker or talk to providers such as The Co-Operative about their home insurance deals.
Making your house a home
While the major purchases for your home and garden are usually one-offs, it’s the little details that make any house into a home. For young families, nursery furniture and those personal touches like mobiles, nightlights and a teddy bear to cuddle up to make a baby’s room special. However, it is essential to ensure that any toys or children’s products are both suitable for the age of the child and conform to all safety legislation.
And that “safety first” approach applies to all electrical appliances, garden equipment and kitchen accessories too. In fact, anything you purchase either in-store or online for your home or garden should meet all specified safety requirements such as carrying the CE symbol or the British Safety Standard Kite mark.
